    Horrible

    It's an outrage!  More and more stories in the news. Teachers are being let go now. Condencing classes to save on money, that's crap!  We need help for this poor situation.

    And You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

    Wait until unemployment hits 25%. Of course, maybe at that point, our government will do something other than bail out the rich. Nah.

    Unemployment And Underemployment

    The unemployment rate is 7.9% according to the latest figures. I think it's higher when you consider the people who are underemployed. I know plenty of them, and live with one of them. I think it's tragic when people who have college degrees (even graduate degrees) cannot find...

    If You Are Unemployed, Should You Move Somewhere Else In Order To Find A Job?

    I once asked a question here on EP last year if anyone would move across the country for a great job. I got a variety of answers mainly leaning in the direction of yes. One that sticks in my mind is from someone that said they would go in order to find “any job.” Would you...

    Worse to Come

    Things are bad right now, but I see them getting worse before they get better. The UK is feeling the pinch worse than the rest of Europe. Our whole economy is based on people buying stuff they can't afford.
